A few weeks ago, Hector Bellerin became the first-ever Arsenal player and active Premier League player to speak to the Oxford Union – the world’s most prestigious debating society. Now, a full video recap of the Q+A is available to watch online, and it makes for fascinating viewing.
Despite only moving to England less than seven years ago, Bellerin spoke more fluently than the majority of footballers about a range of topics, from serious issues such as racism in football, through to his thoughts on Arsenal Fan TV.
Along with being quizzed by Arsenal fans at the talk about his team’s top four chances and how he prepares for North London derbies, Bellerin also answered questions about his philanthropic work, how he deals with fame, and, of course, talking about his interest in fashion with a variety of well-thought-out responses.
